Ariana Madix Makes New Allegations Against Raquel Leviss. For the first episode of the Vanderpump Rules When the reunion aired, Madix claimed Leviss sent a postcard to the house she owns with her ex, Tom Sandoval.
The latest claim comes amid Scandoval, the fan-dubbed name for Sandoval’s months-long fling with Leviss amid his nine-year relationship with Madix.
In the aftermath of the drama, both Madix and Sandoval have continued to live in their shared home, despite photos appearing to show Madix moving out. And while Madix has moved on romantically with Daniel Wai, Sandoval and Leviss have ended their romance.
During a performance on Watch what’s happening live earlier this month, Madix said she doubted Sandoval and Leviss’ split, telling host Andy Cohen: “I don’t believe that at all. She sent letters to my house four days ago.”
Apparently that wasn’t the only correspondence Leviss sent to Sandoval and Madix’s residence. Talking to the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday, less than a week after her WWHL interview, Madix said, “a postcard came to my house yesterday.”
“Yesterday when I came home from recording a podcast, it was in the mail. I put it on the counter,” Madix said. “I mean come on honey, put it in an envelope… I don’t know what the deal is, but I don’t think they’re not together.”
Kristen Doute, Madix’s boyfriend and Sandoval’s other ex, discussed the postal situation during the latest episode of her podcast, Sex, love and whatever else matters.
“On Watch what’s happening live, Ariana tells how Raquel sent a letter. And Andy said, “Did you open it?” And she said, ‘No, that’s a federal crime. I just left it out for him,” Doute said. “I was like, ‘Good on you.’ I would have opened it 100 percent. I would have had that thing in the microwave, unplugged it and resealed it’… Ariana has more self control than I do.”
The podcast continued with Doute and her guests discussing the postcard and revealing that it featured lightning bolts and a message along the lines of “I saw this and thought of you”, which they deemed “really lame and superficial” . .”
The lightning bolt detail is an important detail, earlier this season VPR, Leviss was seen purchasing a necklace with the symbol, similar to one Sandoval owns. That was seen by many as an early hint at the affair, which had yet to be revealed publicly.
“At least that came in an envelope,” Doute said of the first letter, before talking about the postcard: “Girl, if you’re going to send stuff to the house where Ariana currently lives, maybe put it in an envelope so she doesn’t have to not to see, or read, or see the freaking lightning bolts everywhere.”
As for why Sandoval doesn’t seem to have discouraged Leviss’s mailing habits, Doute speculated, “Because he’s probably really happy to get fan mail to his house.”
When ET spoke to Madix on Wednesday, she revealed what she’s aiming for after Scandoval.
“I’m in a position now where I just want to do everything and I’m really enjoying myself, doing it as much as I can,” she said. “I want to claim independence, I want to claim success, I want to reclaim my time. I want to claim all the good vibes and positivity and I want to be involved and leave things in the past.”
